Gay Ottawa Volleyball
Gay Ottawa Volleyball (GOV) is a volunteer, non-profit volleyball league catered mainly to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, queer, and LGBTQ-friendly within Canada's National Capital Region (NCR). The league provides an inclusive and fun environment, but also serves as a healthy social venue for the LGBTQ community.
Our Monday Night Drop-in program will take place at the Rideau Sports Centre (RSC) this year, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, starting on Monday September 16, 2019.We have all four courts, and the earlier time slot allows for more social time afterward.
Registration for the 2019-20 volleyball season will open on Friday August 30, at 7:00pm (on govleague.ca).
All skill levels welcome. The expansion to four courts enables the Monday program to better accommodate a variety of skill levels, which may include (as needed) a court for coaching, a court for intermediate or competitive play, or a court set to a women’s net height, if there is sufficient interest.
We are keeping our traditional McArthur location on Monday nights from 8:00 to 10:00pm. We will use this reservation to rent out to teams seeking practice/scrimmage time, to hold Skills & Drills Clinics, and to host a women’s nights pilot program.
More information about Skills & Drills and women’s nights will be posted in the coming weeks.
Get your Drop-in Punch Card!
- To be able to afford more courts at a better quality facility, prices are going up to $10 ($8.85 +HST) per person per night. We recognize this is a big increase compared to last year’s $5 fee. To help participants save, we are offering a Drop-in Punch Card for $100 ($88.50 +HST).
- A Punch Card buys 12 sessions, redeemable at any Drop-in night or Skills & Drills Clinic during the 2019-20 season.
If this price increase poses a significant barrier to you participating in GOV programs, please reach out to us. We will try to help as best we can.
